The aluminium lightweight wheelchair

RGK TIGA Lightweight wheelchair

Stephen Frampton

“I've always been very self-conscious and have tended to avoid having photos taken of myself in a wheelchair in the past. My Tiga has really helped make me much more confident and comfortable with my disability and I can’t thank you enough.”

Ros Hardiman

“The Tiga made a great deal of difference [to my swim sessions], the first day the shingle was all over the slipway, however, the Tiga made light work of what was left which would have been challenging for the old chair. It's certainly improved my access to the sea as well as being of great help in my daily life.”

Laura Douglas

“The sleek design means that from every day use to going out for a meal, you don't have to feel self-conscious about how you look in your chair. In the year I have had the chair it has changed my life immeasurably; it has increased my independence and self-confidence.”

So good an entire range of wheelchairs have been based upon it

Reliability, quality and an unquestionable trust that it can do whatever you ask of it – that’s what you need from a wheelchair. The Tiga has time and again proven its merit in all of these qualities and more. It’s so exceptionally good that it has subsequently folded, bulked up and stripped back over the years to create three other individual models (the FX, TX and Sub4). Why do you think it’s the day chair of choice for sporting superstars Sophie Carrigill, Abdi Jama, Gordon Reid and Alfie Hewitt? Get the day chair chosen by champions, you won’t be disappointed.

“It has improved my posture, improved my ability to move, and just looks a lot better in general! The lightness of it has made it so much easier for me to get the chair in and out the car and helps me lead an independent lifestyle. I cannot be happier with my chair!”
